Long-Term Results of the Subclavian Flap Repair for Coarctation of the Aorta

Coarctation of the aorta is a congenital narrowing of the thoracic aorta just beyond the takeoff of the left subclavian artery. Among the different surgical repair options for coarctation, the subclavian flap aortoplasty was once widely favored. Originally described by Waldhausen, this technique uses the left subclavian artery as an autologous patch to enlarge the area of coarctation. The absence of a circumferential suture line was purported to provide a decreased risk of recurrent stenosis. The goal of this study is to evaluate the long-term results of patients who underwent subclavian flap aortoplasty repair of coarctation of the aorta at least 20 years ago.
